We like Railay

Very nice setting. Sea, sun and the beach.
The climbs here are like in Ton Sai, but the area is more noisy and there are a lot more monkey feeding tourists--as a consequence of this the monkeys here are more aggressive. Pranang Beach is a beautiful place to chill out after climbing.
Railay was full of absolutely wonderful routes to climb. Type of rock is so different than the granite here in Finland.

🇬🇧
🚶🏻The accesses are divided into three sectors: east, west, and Phranang Beach. The west part is the one we encounter when coming from Tonsai, while the east part is the one we find after crossing Railay. Phranang Beach is the protrusion of the peninsula.
To the west, we find Beach Corner just as we arrive on the beach from Tonsai, while on the opposite side of the beach, we have Wee's Present and Thaiwand. Crossing Railay, we come to a crossroads where, turning left, we encounter Coco first and immediately after Diamond Wall. If, on the other hand, we continue to the right at the intersection, we reach the sea; continuing further to the right, we will come across Muay Thai Wall, and to its left, a path on the beach will lead us to One-Two-Three, and further on to Duncan's Boot and Kochel Rock.
Here, you have two choices: either climb into the woods and encounter Hidden World, Jungle Gym, and The Keep (a fixed rope after crossing the canyon will take you to the base), or continue along the beach to reach Low Tide, Hueco, and Jurassic Park (last three are only accessible with LOW TIDE).
If at Muay Thai, you continue to the right along a cement path, you will arrive at Phranang Beach. Here, to the left you enter The Defile (ONLY WITH LOW TIDE); If you continue along the beach, you'll notice Happy Island, and at the end of the beach on the right, after a short walk in the jungle, you'll find Escher.
